It feels like forever since we got some news on Marvel’s Blade revamp. That changed today when Deadline revealed that Mia Goth had joined the film.
That’s right! The indie darling-turned-horror icon will star in what may very well be Marvel’s first horror film.
Currently, it’s unclear who the actress will be playing, though the ominous Twitter account MyTimeToShineHello has implied that she could play the Marvel character Lillith Drake, the daughter of Dracula.
Regardless of who Goth is playing, one thing remains clear: the film is back on track and production is sure to start soon!
Just about two months ago, Kevin Feige went on the record saying that the project would roll in approximately “the next 10 weeks or so.” If our math is correct, that means that the film could begin shooting in the next two weeks or at the very start of May.
Mahershala Ali is still on board as the titular character, who was famously played by Wesley Snipes in the 2000’s trilogy. Aaron Pierre, Delroy Lindo, are also still attached to star in currently unknown roles. We got to hear Ali’s Blade in a post-credit scene in 2021’s Eternals.
Blade is scheduled to hit theaters on September 6, 2024.
